A few months ago, I shared some of my pain points as a spare-time writer of fiction (“On the Valuable Use of Time”). Now, I’m thrilled to finally announce that the first novel in my new Sacred Grounds series is available on Amazon*.
Kat’s Dreams: A Sacred Grounds Novel Book 1 follows Kat, a woman I think of as both a faithful and a feisty heroine. She’s facing some very difficult things, which make for a good story, but they also gives us a chance to find out who she is. One of the things I’ve enjoyed about writing Kat’s story is how it’s given me a chance to reflect on what faith means in some of the more painful moments of life.
Kat is, after all, on a #MeToo kind of journey. Yet she also has this very stubborn streak of gladness inside of her. She insists on enjoying the world and the people around her, and she’s determined to find a good way forward. That’s one of the reasons I’ve enjoyed working with her as a character.
Many, many thanks for the support and encouragement to get to this moment of publishing my first novel. Kat’s Dreams is now available on Amazon,* and my website has additional resources for individual reflection and group discussion of the novel. I hope you’ll enjoy the read.
